Default PVR and AMD vision/AMD Dual core processor

hey guys,
So I am looking to buy a PVR recording to device to start recording my Xbox gameplay onto a computer in High Definition. The PVR requires an Intel Dual core processor and a 256 mb graphics card. I have to buy a new laptop that can run this. My question is can AMD Dual core replace Intel? Also, is AMD vision capable of running this? My friend said yes but I wanted to make sure before I made any ill advised investments.

Intel Dual core is just a 'rough' guestimate on what they think will run it.

Using the lowest Intel Dual core that exists, the Celeron, i think most AMD duals would be more than enough. Athlon, Phenom, etc. Fusion, Vision. whatever. you would however be better off getting a desktop than a laptop, finding a laptop with a capable 256MB GPU will be hard without a fairly heft budget.

Not entirely accurate. you can buy a dual core Intel or AMD laptop with a 512 MB GPU (dedicated too) for about $500. That's not bad, and a heck of a lot better than it was a few years ago.

So would vision be able to handle it?
